Throwing away the pick...well, for a little while

So today's guitar lesson went well. I immediately copped to still not being comfortable with barre chords, so Scott let me off the hook and said just keep practicing them. Instead, he decided to launch into fingerpicking and taught me the Travis pick pattern. That's actually proving really easy, thank goodness. Plus he taught me two more scales, a pentatonic blues and what he called a country scale. Soooo much easier than the major scale, but woo hoo, more doors opening up for me. I wish I didn't have 2 weeks until my next lesson. Today's was a blast. I hadn't realized how much I missed it until it was over.
